Default Margins in MS Word

I am running a Windows 7 computer with MS Word 2007.  All of a sudden my text in a Word document shows at the very top of the document, although the default margins are set for 1" all around and Print Preview and the actual printing has the text where it belongs within the margins.  The View Setting is "Print View", so I can't figure out what's going on.  

Please help,

Thanks,

Phil

Hover the mouse cursor at the top edge of the document. The cursor should change and the tip 'Double-click to show white space' should appear. Do that and the normal print layout view should be restored.
